Yanniru, there is only going to be an increase in sin in the world. Especially in these latter days.

There are certain segments of the global society, who have as part of their agenda, the denial of a transcendant moral or ethical code. And they have succeeded in large measure.

An inevitable consequence of this is, the inability by anyone to question the actions of anyone else--one can no longer call sin, sin. To do so, is to engage in bigotry.

But, this denies the absolute quality of a moral code.

For example, let us say there is a STOP sign located at an intersection near your home and no one can see it but yourself. And you know that if someone enters the intersection without stopping first, they will likely be involved in a fatal accident. However, your neighbors have succeeded in convincing themselves that, scince they can't see the STOP sign [actually, they choose not to see, but that is another matter], it doesn't exist.

How would you demonstrate love for your nieghbor, given this scenario?

Brian.
